Family barely escapes cheetahs at safari park

It was a very close call for a family that came face to face with a group of cheetahs at a safari park in the Netherlands.

The whole ordeal was caught on video by tourists in a car behind them, who were stunned by what they saw. 

The video shows the family getting out of the car to take pictures just yards from a group of cheetahs resting in the grass. 

The family gets back into the car and drives away, stopping again to get out and take pictures with their child.

Suddenly, a cheetah runs toward them and other cheetahs begin to lurch toward them as they run away with little time to spare.

The park manager says the family was incredibly lucky to escape.
